Edward Weston

1886 - 1958 20th-century American photographer. He picked up photography at a young age, remarkable considering his time.

Place Sketch: Cruxham

Cruxham is a small city sprawled over three hills. It is surrounded by the massive Cruxham timberlands, the largest and last remaining in the de-forested Lowlands zone. Unfortunately, the timberlands have not made Cruxham prosperous. Soft evergreens have few uses in building, certainly no high-value ones. Their primary use, and the region’s key export, is...

The Undiscovered Self

"The forlorn state of consciousness in our world is due primarily to loss of instinct, and the reason for this lies in the development of the human mind over the past aeon. The more power man had over nature, the more his knowledge and skill went to his head, and the deeper became his contempt for the merely natural and accidental, for all irrational data - including the objective psyche, which is everything that consciousness is not."

Machine Learning Sonnet no. 13

Terrible service provided. Was very satisfied of the expense. Seasoned sausage and drain. My inaugural post. Pool and bar image gallery. Many weak men lied. I mod in that category. More well known pattern. Imperfect is what that would truly appreciate them. Potato or tomato? Battle the swinging sheet of an otherwise nice suit. Gross... Continue Reading →

Machine Learning Sonnet No. 10

You will pass away today, or you will contact me immediately. The stars are the gift of the streets. Confocal and virtual reality. Amazing day today and it stayed frozen in time.

Joseph Magnaini

July 12, 1912 - January 23, 1992 An Italian-born American artist and illustrator. He is best known for his collaborations with Ray Bradbury. I prefer illustration, hand-drawn, over painting most of the time. This is no exception. The dynamism is impeccable.

Urantia: Bureaucracy of the Cosmos
